Get a good recording at home

What do I need to start recording? That was my question at first. All I got was an annoying guy telling me to find a studio.

My questions were simple:

  • What equipment do I need?
  • How can I run it?

It took a while, but I finally pieced together enough things to make it happen. It took a lot of research and hard work. But I’m happy with what I can do. And now I want to help you.

Great sound isn't an accident. Home recording takes work. My first stuff was bad. Now it's a lot better.

What makes the difference?

Why don't my CDs sound good? Here are a few reasons:

  • bad preparation
  • poor equipment
  • no knowledge about digital audio
  • no passion for the music

Your sound quality will soar if you do some research, use good quality audio gear, and fight to make your music the best it can be. I know this is true because it worked for me.

That better sound

Here at I am all into getting a better sounding take. I'm after that good sound. Plus all the other stuff along the way.

You'll discover how to start small, and build your home studio from nothing into a digital audio powerhouse. Note - I'm not a pro studio. I just like doing recording, and got decent at it.

I had a lot of help getting my home studio up and running. I started in a bedroom and a living room. It was pretty amusing - the desk was horrific, and I rigged a terrible wooden "rack" for the gear.

Later I moved to a small home studio. Many times on this site you'll hear me talking about my experience - that's because I have it.

Hi there

So I'm a real guy (Lee Weaver), with real experience. I've learned so much from others along the way. Helping others along the path I walked is my way of paying it forward.

Here are a few things you'll find around here:

This website is your guide. Together we can cover the important steps in making a recording you'll be proud of. When you put the effort into things, I'll be here... and I know good things will happen! (And I want to hear them.)
